Terra, Inc., a New York sweater manufacturing company, orally
placed an order for fabrics with Yarner, Inc. (also a New York-based business)
and then sent to Yarner a purchase order, which did not provide any term
related to how any dispute between the parties would be settled. Yarner sent
back an acknowledgment of the order, which contained a clause under which any
dispute must be submitted to arbitration. Terra retained the acknowledgment and
did not object to the arbitration clause.

Assume that the purchase order is an offer and the acknowledgment is an
acceptance of the offer.

Question 1: Is the acceptance binding?

Question 2: If so, is the arbitration clause part of the acceptance?

1) Read UCC section 2-207.

2) Find and read Gaynor-Stafford Industries, Inc. v. Mafco Textured
(you find the citation), and In Matter of Helen
Whiting, Inc.
(you find the citation), two New York cases with facts
similar to these.

3) Answer the two questions in two to three paragraphs each, using the cited
cases and statute as support for your response. You do NOT need to construct an
IRAC-style essay for this assignment.
